Youth Entrepreneur

Our work to support the 2SLGBTQI+ business community extends to ensuring its future.

The OUT For Business Youth Entrepreneur program supports a select group of 2SLGBTQI+ youth entrepreneurs each year. We connect current business leaders in our community with the next generation of leaders to provide them support and guidance in growing their businesses. One-on-one and team mentoring sessions allows both mentor and mentee to expand their learning and network, and creates a mutually beneficial space for sharing experiences and expertise.

Applications for the next cohort will open in Fall 2024!
